A six-wheel armored vehicle has each wheel driven by an engine mounted between the front wheels and to the side of a driver's station disposed in the beveled shaped nose of the vehicle. Terrain in front and to the sides of the vehicle may be viewed by a driver from within the vehicle by a plurality of periscopes. Alternatively, a hatch opening in a forward sloping surface of the nose immediately behind the periscopes permits the driver to raise his head out of the vehicle in order to view the terrain. A fuel storage tank is formed integral with rear portions of the vehicle's hull and comprises a plurality of interconnected fuel cells defined by double wall construction of the hull body. A fresh air inlet and deflector arrangement in the upper horizontal surface of the hull delivers fresh air forwardly to an engine compartment for cooling the engine, and warm air generated by the engine is reversed in flow direction and exhausted via a conduit through an outlet opening immediately adjacent the fresh air inlet.
